Norie Chase is returning home to Stones Creek after finishing school and
taking care of her dying aunt. She loves her father's ranch and is
anxious to once again ride her beautiful stallion across the open
fields. You can imagine her surprise when she suddenly finds herself
pulled from her horse. Norie pulls a knife on him only to find out it's
Linc Pierce, her father's new foreman. He reprimands Norie for being on a
horse that is dangerous. Norie explains to Linc that that has been her
horse for a long time. As they get to know each other, Linc discovers
that Norie can ride, throw knives and shoot better than most men he
knows, but it's things that girls just shouldn't be doing. Norie is
fed-up with the way Linc is always trying to keep her from what he
thinks might be harmful. Why can't he see her for who she is? A friendly
challenge between Linc and Norie just might be the answer.
Norie was an extremely fun story from start to finish. I fell in love
with Norie and Linc in the first book (Leah's Peace) so was anxious to
hear their tale. Chasing Norie and Leah's Peace are parallel stories
which is really a neat way to do a series. It's basically the same story
from a different point of view. I don't think I've read stories like
that before but REALLY liked it. Linc and Norie are a hoot. Their banter
and antics kept me smiling and even laughing out loud sometimes. Along
with the laughter though, you'll find touching moments too. There was
certainly a lot of chemistry between them, which is always a plus for
me. For as spirited as Norie was, she always wanted to be pleasing to
the Lord, which I appreciated. One person I really liked in this story
was Norie's father, Wes. I thought the way he handled things was really
neat. You have to read the story to understand what I mean. I honestly
hated to see this tale come to an end but I did like the ending. If you
enjoy books by Mary Connealy then I think you would definitely enjoy
I'm a mom of three boys and wife to a great guy. I love coffee and reading and reviewing books. I am what you might call a "bookaholic". (Even more than that...a Kindleholic!) I also love to shop the thrift stores for interesting treasures! I appreciate the authors I know and love but I also like finding new authors and making new author friends.
